Item description for Wills and Other Probate Records: A Practical Guide to Researching Your Ancestors' Last Documents (Readers Guides) (Readers Guides) by Karen Grannum; Nigel Taylor...

Our ancestors' wills and related records can be a valuable source of genealogical information; an opportunity to find out more about their lives, families, livelihoods - sometimes even their personalities. However, the records can seem complex. From 1858 wills were centrally registered and researching them is straightforward but before 1858 wills were administrated in a network of church courts and the records are scattered. This comprehensive guide makes will research available to all, from the novice family historian to the seasoned researcher seeking clarification on complexities. It makes sense of the records and the institutions to approach as well as the indexes and digital resources increasingly available. Legal terminology and Latin phrases are translated and the text is illustrated throughout with examples of the records including wills. Contents: * Introduction * Church courts and records before 1858 * Finding a will before 1858 * Administrations before 1858 * Wills and administrations from 1858 onwards * Understanding the will * Inventories and accounts * Death duty registers * Litigation * Other probate records * Appendices, Further Reading and Index

Reviews - What do customers think about Wills and Other Probate Records: A Practical Guide to Researching Your Ancestors' Last Documents (Readers Guides) (Readers Guides)?

How to conduct research for such instruments, and the pros and cons of their contents.  Nov 7, 2006
Karen Grannum and Nigel Taylor's WILLS AND OTHER PROBATE RECORDS provides insights from the experts at the National Archives, and while this holds a British focus, many researchers from other countries will find it invaluable. Those whose ancestors have roots in the UK receive chapters on how to conduct research for such instruments, and the pros and cons of their contents.
